Commentary
A new museum, opened in 2011, and largely given over to aspects of transport and travel, and particularly those connected in some way to the local area.A wide variety of vehicles are on display, including many cars and motorcycles.  These tend to be mounted around the walls, with explanatory details given on display boards and screens.
